The Lady Pirates were at home Wednesday night hosting District Rival the Malad Dragons. They traveled to the Malad tournament over the weekend and will be in Aberdeen on Thursday, Oct. 10, for a match at 7 p.m before traveling to the Laker Tournament in Ogden Oct. 11-12.

West Side took second in the silver bracket at the Malad tournament Oct. 4-5. "It was a good competitive tournament," said Coach Melinda Royer.

The Dragons have proven to be a great match for the Pirates and the home matchup on Oct. 2 had the Pirate fans on the edge of their seat.

In the first set the Pirates stunned the Lady Dragons taking the first set 31-29, resulting from minimal defensive errors and an attacking offense.

The Pirates took a 19 - 15 advantage in the third set but the Dragons charged back taking the third 23 - 25.
